  • Wiring is everyone's favorite issue. That is why my fj80 has been sitting for 2 years. Fricken electricity.

  • Lost parts just males it lighter, thus, faster. Every vehical has tons of extra parts. Can't believe you haven't hit 1 million subs, it will happen. Damn, a million boys (and Lizzy), it's in the way.

  • Nice rig, you should consider changing all your hoses to silicone hoses, they are expensive but expected life is 20 yrs plus.

  • Having many yrs experience with the Amc/Jeep 4.0 6-inlines, to get the full benefit fan draw, I can't imagine trying to go without a tight fan shroud. With all the engine bay openings, tornado like winds will be creating big back pressure against the radiator, fans work. I missed seeing x-mission coolers on the ck-off list. Matt, thks for the vids, keep the fun going.

  • how about a 6.4 hemi instead of 4.6 ?

  • This fights for My top video I've seen so far.. love seeing the real work being put in.. I come from a heavy off road background, in pretty much all types of off road play. We know what you do as the "Job" is just Play! Strategized play that is. Truly think y'all have thought up one of the best ways to enjoy your craft, and make a... humble living! Like I said awesome content

  • If you are having a miss, it is a possibility that one of the injector wires got twisted and grounded out that burnt out one of the injector driver for that injector in the computer, which caused one injector not to fire. That happened to me when I installed the 4.7L stroker that I built for my 2000 XJ , this spring.

  • That "vacuum leak" sound that you hear in the cab is coming from the THOR intake. I have the same one on my XJ, takes a little to get used to but not too long. It's just amplifying the sound of the throttle body. Once the sound deadening is in place, it will be much less noticeable.

  • Like you channel. I think you can increase your audience by given more attention to the young lady, she is good looking and nice, not talking about sexualized her, I’m talking about given her more empowerment to attract more followers. An idea could be for her to have her how vehicle with a feminine and “rude” style. For example let her choose the color and details of the female OFF ROAD force. If you do it and you increase your revenue, you let me know to send my invoice. Have a good day.

  • 1. The whistle is intake suction noise 2. Sounds mean as hell 3. Limp mode is more than likely due to the dead cylinder.
